Max/MSP with Adobe Flash interface
i was wondering if anyone could help me out
i want to make a reactable style synthesizer (controlling synth parameters with blocks on a table) and have the graphics on the interface generated in flash.
i was wondering if its possible to have adobe flash controlled by max/msp?
for example when i move the block around the tabletop the graphics produced in flash moves around with the block
is that possible? and if so could anyone point me out to a few tutorials?

Best bet is probably via OSC: use udpsend/udpreceive on the MaxMSP
side, and flosc on the Flash side. It’ll require a fair bit of wiring,
plumbing and bricklaying, but it’s possible.
Or, you may want to just investigate doing the graphics in MaxMSP
directly via jsui; a lot less bother.

I’m pretty sure it was Processing that was used, maybe as a controller for Max or pd. You can find more info on reactable from processing.org
Just in case you hadn’t seen that info…
Actually, the reactivision software is available in a number of protocols, including flash, but is mainly for tracking with a camera.
In terms of Flash and music, check out a tutorial I did for Infusion Systems, using a Java MIDI server based on Flosc. The Java server wasn’t able to see Max’s MIDI output, only hardware interfaces, but I didn’t experiment that much.
